Vieux Chateau Certan 2021

Topwein des Jahrgangs
Der Wein des Jahrganges? Das ist eine Stilfrage. F√ľr uns pers√∂nlich jedenfalls z√§hlt VCC zu den Top-5 des Jahrganges. Die Familie Thienpont schafft es Jahr f√ľr Jahr einen derart burgundischen und feinen, dabei ausdrucksstarken Pomerol zu vinifizieren, dass es einem die Sprache verschl√§gt. Derart pr√§zise gezeichnet, derart komplex, dabei so enorm reife Frucht, diese aber nicht √ľberbordend, solche Tannine, diese aber feisnt gewoben. Was soll man sagen? 67% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc, 3% Cabernet Sauvignon formen etwas, das man schwer in Worte fassen kann. Ein Wein zum Niederknien.

Galloni: "The 2021 Vieux Ch√Ęteau Certan is a spectacular tour de force from Alexander and Guillaume Thienpont. What a wine. Vibrant and magnificent in its precision, the 2021 races across the palate, revealing seemingly endless layers of nuance over time. Dark blue/purplish fruit, cinnamon, new leather, graphite, lavender and crushed rocks all build effortlessly. The Cabernets are dialed up in 2021 and that comes through in the wine's flavor profile and overall feel. The purity of the flavors is just mind-bending. Harvest took place etween September 25 and October 4. The blend is 67% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 3% Cabernet Sauvignon. Readers who can find the 2021 should not hesitate, as it is truly magical."
Weinwisser: "77 % Merlot, 20 % CF, 3 % Cabernet Sauvignon, pH 3.63, 13,2 Vol.-%, 38 hl/ha. Bet√∂rendes Bouquet, frischgepfl√ľckte schwarze Johannisbeere, Heidelbeergelee und Holundersaft, dahinter bet√∂rendes Veilchenparf√ľm, zarte Milchschokolade und rote Johannisbeerdrops. Am subtilen Gaumen mit seidiger Textur, magischer Rasse, unglaublicher Pr√§zision, st√ľtzendem Graphit und trainiertem K√∂rper. Im konzentrierten Finale mit einem energiegeladenen Zug, dynamisch, schwarzbeerige Konturen, Himbeermark und erhabene Adstringenz. Einer der Besten am Rechten Ufer. Der Jahrgang wird von Alexandr√© mit ¬ęaromatic, fresh & flavoursome¬Ľ, beschrieben."
Vinum: "Sehr stiltreuer, VCC, präzise gezeichnet, mit betörendem aromatischen Potential, schlank, Tannin mit Schliff, subtile Eleganz trotz der Dichte: einmalig, stilvoll, herrlich."
Wine Enthusiast: "96‚Äď98. Barrel Sample. The wine has freshness and a fine perfume that highlights the structure. There is a lovely velvet character to this wine, enhanced by the structure from the 20% Cabernet Franc in the blend. It is light, packed with fruit, beautifully aromatic."
Suckling: "Medium to full body with a supple, textured and firm tannin structure. Velvety and perfumed with fragrant notes of flowers, cloves, plums and raspberries. Broad and layered. Very supple and evolving. Opens on the palate. 77% merlot, 20% cabernet franc and 3% cabernet sauvignon."
Decanter: "Ripe juicy strawberry, this has a gorgeous intensity on the nose, really fragrant and expressive, in a rich deep, heavily-scented way. You get the ripeness here with smooth, silky tannins giving depth and intensity on the palate. Succulent with a sharpness, that hit of freshLy picked strawberry and cherry juice - electric and bright with tension and direction. It‚Äôs softly spoken in one way, so quietly confident, yet showing so much detail in another, saying; 'looking at how charming I can be'. It has freshness and tension - ‚Äėa cool climate VCC‚Äô said Alexandre Thienpont. Bright acidity through delivered gracefully and sensitively with a gentle persistence. I love the delicacy, it has body no doubt, but it‚Äôs the detail that‚Äôs so captivating. A wonderful wine and one of the best from Pomerol in 2021."
Falstaff: "Dunkles Rubingranat, violette Reflexe, zarte Randaufhellung. Dunkelbeerig im Duft, sehr klar, sehr reif. Florale Noten, Baumharz. Im Mund seidig und f√ľllig, weich grundiert, m√ľrb-k√∂rniges Tannin ohne Gr√ľnt√∂ne, sehr dicht, dennoch mild wirkend, viel Saftigkeit, gro√üe Homogenit√§t und L√§nge, feinfruchtig begleitet. Ein makellos reif gelesener Charmeur mit Tiefe und unglaublicher Eleganz."
Neal Martin: "The 2021 Vieux Ch√Ęteau Certan was picked from September 24 to October 6 at 38hL/ha and registers 13.2% alcohol. It is a VCC defined by its Cabernets; Guillaume Thienpont told me ]they used all they had. "I would have blended more if we had more vines," he quipped. The nose unfurls with air to reveal graphiteinfused black fruit, touches of undergrowth and tobacco ‚Äď quintessential VCC aromatics. The palate is beautifully balanced with exquisite definition, not powerful and certainly not opulent, yet built around finesse, precision and charm. It seems to grow in stature in the glass. Pure class."
Wine Advocate: "A blend of 77% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 3% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2021 Vieux Ch√Ęteau Certan wafts from the glass with lovely aromas of violets, rose petals, sweet wild berries, exotic spices, orange rind and smoke. Medium to full-bodied, supple and enveloping, it's an elegant, fleshy wine with a bright core of fruit, ultra-refined tannins and a precise, saline finish. Despite its almost Burgundian finesse, this Pomerol's remarkably penetrating, perfumed finish gives the lie to any notion that it's in any way lacking in intensity of flavor. As is almost invariably the case, Vieux Ch√Ęteau Certan is one of the finest wines of the appellation this year."
Perroti-Brown: "The 2021 Vieux Chateau Certan is composed of 77% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc, and 3% Cabernet Sauvignon. Deep garnet-purple colored, it slowly grows on the nose to reveal vibrant, perfumed notes of black raspberries, fresh black plums, and redcurrant jelly, plus suggestions of cast-iron pan, lilacs, rose oil, cinnamon stick, and aniseed with a waft of forest floor. The medium-bodied palate is very tightly wound, featuring loads of layers of red and black fruits intertwined with mineral sparks, supported by very fine-grained tannins and bold freshness, finishing on a lingering fragrant earth note. A wine that shimmers from start to finish. The alcohol is 13.3% and the pH is 3.62."
Wine Cellar Insider: "Dark ruby in color, the perfume kicks off with lilacs, violets, graphite, nutmeg, spice, plums and black cherry nuances. On the palate, the wine is fresh, vibrant, crisp, chewy and long. The salty touch of minerality in the endnote adds to all the sweet, dark red pit fruits. Refined, elegant and classic, (but in a good way) there is length, purity, tension and energy in the finish, with just a hint of spice too. The wine blends 77% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 3% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13.2% ABV. The harvest took place September 24-September - October 6. Yields were 38 hectoliters per hectare. Drink from 2026-2049."
Dunnuck: "The 2021 Vieux Ch√Ęteau Certan is another pure, elegant Pomerol with plenty to love. Giving up a very pretty, precision, and medium-bodied style, it has lots of pure blue fruits, notes of spring flowers and graphite, finely polished tannins, and a great finish. It shows the cooler, fresher style of the vintage but has incredible purity and certainly brings good intensity. The tannins here are also terrific. The blend is 77% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc, and 3% Cabernet Sauvignon, all of which is still resting in 65% new French oak."
Robinson: "Rich, racy and aromatic with floral notes to the fore. Old-vine intensity, something not always evident this year. Smooth, elegant texture with fine, persistent tannins. Sweetness to the fruit on attack then fresh and driven on the finish. Good potential. (JL)"
